The original storyline, said to be inspired by the Shochiku Kagekidan, takes place in an alternate 1920s Tokyo. It follows the adventures of an all-female secret task force known as the Imperial Assault Force — Flower Division as they defend the Imperial Capital Tokyo against evil. They are led by Ichiro Ogami, a newly graduated Imperial Navy Ensign who had been assigned to the squad partly due to his unique ability to use a special type of armor that only women having high levels of spiritual powers could previously operate.
Sakura Wars is an iconic series from Sega that has spawned five games, six OVAs, a TV series, a movie, and a manga. Until now, only the 5th entry (Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love for the PS2 and Nintendo Wii) had been made available in English, but fan translators have begun working on the original. Also, 90s animation kicks ass, and so does this song.
